This spacious pub boasts several trading rooms, including a cosy lounge, a function room, and a warm and inviting public bar. But that’s not all – there’s also fantastic outdoor space, complete with a separate external bar, a large courtyard, and a stunning beer garden perfect for soaking up the sun during the warmer months. And with a car park that can accommodate twenty-five vehicles, you won’t have to worry about customers struggling to find parking.

Guests love the White Lion if they want to host a birthday party, a wedding reception, or enjoy a quiet pint with friends. The pub has everything guests need to create an unforgettable experience.

Ideal operator

As the new publican at The White Lion, you’ll have many opportunities to be  creative and entrepreneurial.

We’re seeking a talented host of live music performances, quiz nights, and themed events to draw in the locals and create a lively atmosphere.
